Custom Home Process


Discovery consultation

It is important that we have a comprehensive understanding of both your site and your unique vision before we get started on your dream home. To make sure we’re on the same page when it comes to your build, we start every project with a one hour meeting to discuss the scope and learn more about you, your ideas and requirements.

Concept design

Once we have worked out what you want to achieve, it’s time to figure out what thatlooks like in reality. Our in-house designers will turn your ideas into drawings, and create detailed floor plans and elevations. Throughout this process, Marco will support you withfeedback and suggestions from a practical builder’s perspective. You will be able tomake changes to your plan until we can provide a design that you are happy with. As an optional service, you can take you through a lifesize walk-through of your unique custom designed home before it is built.

Specifications and selections

To take your new home’s design to the next level, you will need to decide on your specifications. Finalising a full list of fixtures, finishes and fittings at this stage will allow us to provide you with the most accurate quote possible and make sure your home is being designed exactly as you pictured.

Preliminary Building Agreement and Cost design

The Preliminary Building Agreement (PBA) is job specific and will include the preparation of architectural drawings suitable for construction, feature contour survey, site classification report, structural engineering design and a site inspection. If needed we will include town planning R-code checklist and BAL report. After these reports are complete we can provide you with an accurate, fixed price to build prior to signing the contract. After gaining a thorough understanding of your design and specifications, we will work on a cost analysis. At this point, we will make any last-minute changes to suit your budget expectations and eliminate the chance of variation costs during the build, wherever possible.

At the end of this stage, we can give you a detailed summary of the costs and the
timeline of the different activities to be scheduled during the construction.


Contract signing

Once you’re happy with the final fixed price, our team will work on transforming this into a building contract. We’ll then use and prepare a Master Builders Association contract and decide upon a commencement date that suits us both. Once you’re happy with this, it’s time to sign the contract and get started on construction!

Building permit documentation and Home Indemnity Insurance

Our team can finalize the architectural drawings and engage the consultants required to produce all the remaining reports needed to obtain the building permit. Once we have the certificate of design compliance and the Home Indemnity Insurance certificate we can submit the application for the building permit to your local council.


This is where your dream comes to life. As soon as the council issue the building permit, we can begin working on your project. We’ll give you regular updates and send photos so you can share progress shots with friends and family. We’ll also organise regular site meetings and walkthroughs so you can rest assured things are going to plan.


Prior to final completion and project handover, we’ll organise a final walk through of the project with you to ensure everything is to your specification. This is also a chance for us to attend to any defects that may have arisen during the build. Once we’re both happy with a job well done, it’s time for handover – welcome to your new home!

Ongoing support

With every new building project, there is a period of time when the building likes to settle. Although we strive for a defect free handover, we do offer a 90 day maintenance period to attend to any of these minor issues that arise. This will include access to trades and suppliers to ensure your home is maintained beyond your expectations. We will provide you with regular emails to ensure that you are kept informed and up to date with what is required at certain stages after your handover day.

Once this period has passed, we offer a further seven year structural warranty to guarantee you ongoing peace of mind.
